The Eagle has landed
I totally disassembled the guitar tonite.
Here's maybe why it was so cheap. *The pickguard was routed just a wee bit to fit the EMG. *It was routed to the middle of the pup screw holes. *Not a major problem though. *The EMG was direct mounted (with all the proper pots too) to the body, and that's what I'll have to do with the bridge pup now. *With the Blaze in the bridge, there is not much of a gap around it, so Im not too ticked about the routing, and it was clean cutting too, so it looks factory.
The 5 way switch is not original either, so Im thinking about getting one of those super switches or something.
Other than that the condition is super super clean. *The serial number starts with F97. *Pretty impressive for a 4 year old guitar. *Discounting the EMG issue, I would rate it a 9.8 out of 10.
I will probably have the EMG guts for sale real cheap. As a matter of fact, anyone who wants them make me an offer for it, pots and pickup. *(I'll post an actual ad in the proper thread Glen).
